This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Today I upload a set of roofs. They are not necessarily medieval. I think they'd look good on any dark themed lot. I did these after a request of luckywelshpup and HeartDeco, but got a bit carried away (23 roofs, am I mad??)

Included are:

-6 normal recolours of Maxis' japanese roof
-4 mossy rec. of the same (look at the pictures before you download. luckywelshpup wanted some mossy roofs - don't know if they came out that good)
-5 dirty or mossy recolours of Maxis' red-tiles roof
-2 thatch roofs: 1 normal and one mossy (also requested by luckywelshpup)
-6 dirty recolours of Maxis' slate roof

See the big picture for the different colours and to decide which ones to download. The red-tiles roof recolours are my favorites

I nearly forgot: All of the roofs use a random guid. That is simply, because I haven't done enough objects yet, to have 23 guids registered. Don't worry: the probability that one of these conflicts with another custom roof is nearly 0.

Happy Building and don't forget to push the THANKS-button

Bit out of character though, as I'm not a Slytherin! No, honestly he's one of my favourite HP characters.

Anyway thanks for all the nice comments, I really need this to buffer up my self-esteem

hi, yeah the japanese roofs shouldnt cause any problems. Its been a long time since I did them, but i think the only ones that might not work without ep's are the slate roofs...not sure though
hope your japanese sims enjoy their new roofs

These are the first roofs I've come across in my search for custom content... I'm sure there are more out there, but I haven't seen them yet. I'm very excited, and can't wait to try them in my game!

Thanks for sharing these, they look great in the screenshots and it's a badly needed item.

Japanese roofs are being mentioned as if they are a normal part of the game, since sailorvivi said "I only have the original TS2? I have no EP's" and the reply was that this would work without them. I do have two EPs but regardless, I have no japanese roofs and cannot find these roofs after installing them.

Is there something I need to do other than just installing using Q-express? What do I need to do in order to find and use these in game?

I just made a medieval cottage and needed a thatch roof.... Thank You!

Let me know if you use any of my recolors in a story, video, etc. I'd like to see it!
#17 Old 14th Feb 2007 at 10:00 PM
Oooooh. These are BEAUTIFUL.
I've only seen two or three custom roofs for the Sims 2 ever... So 23 of them...
-Dances around screeching for joy-
Thanks for these! This set is entirely one of a kind.
